Can someone direct me to the flying job that pays $67k and requires no experience or training? Sounds lovely! And boy do I feel like a doofus for getting that stupid degree...
When the economy started to show troubling signs, many decided to skip college and join the workforce earlier.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 60 percent of U.S. workers don't have a bachelor's degree, but if you have an associate’s degree, a postsecondary non-degree award, or a high school diploma, you can still get a high-paying job.
The BLS provided a list of 80 high-paying occupations that don't require a college degree. The median annual wages listed include hourly, weekly, annual pay, sales commissions, and production bonuses. Overtime wages are not included in the data.
